Servers were attentive, presentation was lovely, food tasty, bar drink was ok. The veiw is what you go for. Unfortunately they do not spin anymore due to accident a few years back, so they may never do it again. But they have the upper area that specifically set for photos. Overall, nice experience. We enjoyed it.

Wonderful view and service. Food was immaculate, would recommend the rack of lamb if it’s still available (menu changes seasonally). Truly an experience! Peter was awesome and gave great parting gifts.

The steak was not tender for the price. The food really didn't stand out like we expected. The drinks had little to no alcohol in it.

Our dinner at The Sun Dial was phenomenal! Our server Peter was fantastic. He was very attentive and friendly. The atmosphere was great. The food was fantastic. The views were out of this world. Not only was our server great, but all the servers around our area were over the top. We never lacked for anything at our table of 7. We all had various entrees from the pork chop dinner to the salmon dinner to the kids peanut butter and jelly dinner. The portions were huge and the flavoring on everything was to die for. This was all our first visit to The Sun Dial and we were all blown away. We’ve all traveled all over the world and ate at various restaurants, so we aren’t just Applebee’s regulars lol. We all enjoy fine dining and we know excellent service when we experience it and this place is definitely one of our top 5. Thank you all for such a wonderful evening and I look forward to visiting y’all again.

This is an amazing venue atop the westin downtown with striking 360 degree views and floor to ceiling windows over more than 2 stories in the space. Unfortunately the food was very disappointing. They really ought to get a restaurateur who can deliver appropriately in this breathtaking space. We had calamari, Buratta salad, seabass, and salmon. All were disappointing especially for the premium prices. Seabass we sent back as it tasted weird and smelled of ammonia, salmon was excessively salty, overdone and dry. Our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable about the menu, and friendly but never asked for temperature on it. Manager did ask how things were and we sent the seabass away at that point. Tomatoes in the Buratta salad were fabulously tasteless, mushy yet unripe. Calamari was what you'd get about anywhere; generic. I rarely have high expectations for hotel restaurants, but this place should be vastly better especially given its extraordinary location.

If you really want to check the space out, I'd suggest going for a drink at the bar and save the $125/pp for somewhere with culinary acumen.

I was staying at the Westin for the weekend and by chance a reservation opened up on a Saturday night. Dinner turned out to be even better than I expected. The table I was seated at was perfect to watch the sunset. The waiter explained the buildings that were around me since I was visiting from out of town. Although the restaurant no longer turns around you are still able to walk around the restaurant to have a 360 degree view of the city. The table seating was spread out so when you wanted to take pictures of the skyline, you were not disturbing any of the other guests that evening. The wait staff was great, and I’m looking forward to visiting the Sun Dial restaurant again.

Great view of the city. Did not rotate but still a great view no matter your location. We had lamb chops and sea bass with calamari as an app. Food did not wow us by any means especially considering the prices. The waiter was amazing and the mixed drinks were great!

The Sun Dial is known for its revolving view of Atlanta. It no longer revolves and I had a view of a column. The table cloths were very wrinkled and lopsided, taking away from a high-end feel and making it feel very messy. The server barely came around and the food was premade or bottled. Nothing felt fresh or especially good. We spent a ridiculous $300 for 2 people. It was not worth it at all.

It was nice ….but ridiculous that they stopped it from rotating. Very disappointing….that was the whole reason we chose this place. If you take away that it does not rotate….it is just a restaurant with a good view …nothing special!

Local to Atlanta, first time to Sundial to celebrate. Food was horrible, way off price point, poorly prepared, broken down seating chairs, dirty tablecloths.

Everyone in my family (except me) became sick after eating there.
